Former Premier League champions, Leicester City, have moved top of the Premier League after their stellar performance against Chelsea at the King Power Stadium which saw Wilfred Ndidi and James Maddison score.
The Foxes jumped onto a perfect start after Wilfred Ndidi’s strike from the edge of the box hit the post and went in giving the Foxes a lead in the 6th minute.
Led by Brendan Rodger’s the 2016 League Champions dominated most part of the first half of proceedings although Chelsea was nearly awarded a penalty after Christian Pulisic went down under a challenge from Jonny Evans; only for VAR to deny the London-based club citing that the offence took place just outside the area.
James Maddison then doubled Leicester’s lead four minutes before the break with a sweet finish to put Leicester City in a comfortable lead after a sluggish display of lack of urgency in the Chelsea defence.
Clearly, Frank Lampard’s side lacked determination in the first half and creativity in the second and pressure is increasingly mounting for the Blue legend.
Just when many thought Lampard would’ve used this match to salvage some hope for the Chelsea as they look to recover from a terrible performances in the past few weeks, the Chelsea players displayed poor attitude during the game with a show of lacking any spark and urgency, and more significantly desire.
Speaking to BBC Sport after the game, Leicester City midfielder, James Madison said: “I feel good, I feel sharp. I feel good in front of goal which is always a good sign as an attacking player.
“Everyone talks about the title, every week it is said a different team will win it. We will just go about our business and let you talk about that.
“The gaffer has been here two years, he has really stamped his authority on the group. We are playing well consistently. We have learned our lesson from last year by showing more consistency.
“Tactically we controlled Chelsea without the ball at times as well and it.”
Leicester are now a point ahead of former league leaders, Manchester United having played a game more while Chelsea are in eighth, five points off the Champions League places and closely in sight of Arsenal who share a seat in the bottom region of the league table.
